The search for Eldorado, democracy and the relationship between father and son. In this moving book, set in the 60's - from the creation of Braslia to the beginning of the dictatorship - the author wrenches from his readers, be they young or not so young, tears of emotion and exclamations of enthusiasm. Luiz Fernando Emediato author of Geração Abandonada, Eu vi Mamãe Nascer e Verdes Anos, amongst other books - paints an extraordinary and concise picture of the uncertainties and heroisms of human existence. Written in the language of realism, but imbued with lyricism and subjective nostalgia, this gripping narrative is a real page turner. The epic adventure of the father, a Don Quixote, is seen through his son's eyes with a mixture of admiration, love, pain, pride and sadness. This book, which deals with both the power of dreams and the struggles of life, is particularly apt for young readers.
